From My Lips to God’s Ears: Second Edition

“Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.” Louisa May Alcott: “The above quote from one of America’s well-known authors speaks to my very soul and, in part, has helped me to reach beyond myself and persevere in my life’s journey which has come to include becoming an author. There was a time when I could not see beyond my sadness and despair, a time when I couldn’t imagine trying to attain my lost aspirations. I’ve written a book called From My Lips To God’s Ears: Second Edition which is a fusion of my heritage and a recollection of the life-altering event that held me captive for more than three decades. Initially I wrote the book as a self-help tool with no intentions of publishing it. However, on the advice of others, my book has followed a very different path. It is the heart-breaking story of cruelty and total disregard for a young girl’s life. Because of the atrocity I experienced at the hands of someone I knew and trusted, my life as I had known it was totally shattered and destroyed. I fell into a negative mindset that spiraled out of control. Fortunately, through a spiritual awakening. I came to understand that forgiveness and love were the two keys essential to finding my way back to the life I once looked forward to with confidence. The sole purpose of this book is to bring hope and encouragement to people who have been living in bondage and pain – to give assurance that you do deserve a second chance to live a life filled with all the blessings God intended everyone to enjoy. “M.A. Walker “M.A. it is and honour and privilege to have read your book. Beautiful! Amazing! Inspiring! It brought a few chuckles and parts of it brought tears to my eyes. I’m so glad you put your story on paper. You have, no doubt, been an encouragement and an inspiration to others who have experienced unimaginable, horrific acts, what a wonderful opportunity to tell God’s story. Harbouring anger and hate can only lead to self-destruction. Forgiveness is liberating! I know your book will help other people, especially women, but men can benefit from reading it too. I’ve already told other friends to read it! “God Bless you, John Fonte
